Kniziathon !

Post  Jon M on Tue 14 Apr 2015, 11:51

Hi folks,
Fancy dedicating a Tuesday to 100% games designed by Reiner Knizia ? As part of there 30 years celebrations there's a Kniziathon Promotion and there's free stuff to be had !

https://twitter.com/reinerknizia/status/587911234386841600

So if we're up for it we shud pick a Tuesday in July as they want plenty of adavnce notice to get us our stuff and I'll fill in the online application !

I'll chuck in Igenious a Knizia classic that's not been off my shelf for far too long !

Sounds like a good idea to me, I recently picked up a copy of Star Trek Expeditions which could use a play.

Sounds good to me. Free stuff! I've got Samurai, but I think that's it.

I've got Ra and I think I've got Taj Mahal.

Ra is awful though, so I'm selling it at the Expo bring & buy and thus will hopefully no longer have it in July.

I've not yet played Taj Mahal.

Personally I'd love to play a whole load of Knizia games. I don't get to play with my lovely little Through The Desert pastel camels often enough.

Oooh, yes, this is a great idea. I've got:
- Masters Gallery (not played this yet)
- Priests of Ra (also not played yet but did play the dice version which wasn't great)
- Strozzi (pretty fun and light)
- Tigris & Euphrates (great, deep game!)

I'd also be keen to try out his LOTR game.

I've got Palazzo which is a really good auction game.

"Who will build the most magnificent palace? In the game of Palazzo, set in the age of the late renaissance, the players slip on the roles of wealthy landowners, who compete against each other to build the most valuable palaces. As their constructions grow, the players must choose from the available palace modules from the quarries, so they can add to their palaces. Of course, none of this building can be done without money, so sometimes players must take time out to earn some money so they can afford to continue their building projects."

A 'The Works' special!

I bought Tigris & Euphrates yesterday and had a (slightly tired and fuzzy) go at playing it that evening. It's great, even though I don't think we quite managed to explore the full intricacies of the strategy.

Yep. I don't know if there's any changes from the original, other than having plastic pieces instead of wooden ones. I'll be bringing it along tonight.

I'll be interested to see it! Sounds like the rules are the same, just a new design and new pieces I think.

Pretty generous of them to send all those games. I'm impressed and wonder what they get out of it? More exposure?
